Was surprised to see that Jasmin Moghbeli was selected as EV-1 on her first EVA, especially with an EVA experienced mate.
O’Hara and Mogensen had been planning to conduct a spacewalk this month to collect samples and examine the possibility of microbes living on the outside of the orbital laboratory. However, mission managers have decided to defer that spacewalk to no earlier than December as they review data from a backup radiator leak that has since ceased.
When is this EVA planned?

What is happening with the SSRMS Elbow joint?
Quote from: litton4 on 01/12/2024 02:21 pmWhat is happening with the SSRMS Elbow joint?The posted steps suggest that it's not the joint currently on the SSRMS that's involved, but rather the spare SSRMS Pitch/Roll Joint currently on ESP-2 - something about reconfiguring some of the Expandable Diameter Fasteners that are used to connect the SSRMS components, and also manually moving the angle of the joint. That particular joint was launched to the station on STS-118 back in August 2007, and I don't believe it's been manipulated since.
Any updates on EVA 90?
Unfortunately the spacewalk I was planned to go out on will not be performed this time, but maybe in the future by another crew.
